You’ve seen this color combo many times. In the past month, I’ve completed over seven mid century pieces, all in Benjamin Moore Super White and either Dark Walnut or English Chestnut. Although monotony or repetition can suppress creativity, I continually come back to these color combinations because I want my furniture to be versatile. Versatility allows my furniture to withstand a client’s change in style or a move to a new home and hopefully saves them from having to spend money on new pieces as their taste changes.
In our home, most of the furniture is neutral and color is reserved for the walls. Here are just a few vignettes of the shades in our home.
